Original Pechanga Blog TOPS Pechanga.Net in Native News Rankings from Alexa

THANK YOU for reading, thank you for sharing, THANK you for allowing aggrieved Native Americans this outlet. THANK you for continuing to help shine the spotlight on tribal corruption, tribal disenrollment, moratorium and exposing the civil and human rights abuses in Indian Country
Circa 1890 - Original Pechanga Person

I began this blog in 2007 to draw attention to the abuses of disenrollment, moratoriums and banishment by casino gaming tribes in CA.   It was primarily focused on the Pechanga Band of Luiseno Indians from Temecula CA.  But, along the way, I've met hundreds of new friends, from many tribes who have had the same thing happen to them.   We got little attention, at the time, in fact:

In 2008, we got into a spat with owner (And Pechanga member who voted to terminate HUNDREDS of Pechanga people) Victor Rocha's assistant Rob Schmidt about our blog not being a news site.
He posted a ranking from THE internet site ranker, which I'll put up after this comment he wrote:  
I hope you're happy with these results, because I sure am. The only thing that would make me happier would be to see and ranked higher than Indian Country Today and But we all need goals to strive for. Any questions about where most Indians go for information?
                                                               2008                            2016
Indian Country Today:                         221,841                            49,191                                       259,464                           231,265                    3,083,555                           205,913                 9,239,654                           696,796                                   395,325                           820,702                       324,108                         1,385,665                4,307,680                         2,037,907

WE OUTRANK ROCHA's site in worldwide and US RANKINGS! In this case, a LOWER number is better:

As of Wednesday 10/12, the rankings in the US/World for my blog are:  113,233/ 696,796
Current ranking for 7/31 in the US/World for are:  153,581/ 820,702

Of course, has sponsors, gaming and others, so he's making money and has prestige. Ours is the little blog that COULD.  We get the word out on abuses that Rocha's cousin Mark Macarro has inflicted on hundreds.   And we share what's happening to, sadly, THOUSANDS of Native Americans by their OWN TRIBES. 

Ours gets read by Congress, media and TRIBES!   OUR BLOG, is where people go for information on tribal disenrollment, on tribal civil rights abuses and to see how are government has allowed harm to come to our elders.

Yes, the Pechanga tribe may be our best source and the BIA our best customer.  Things always change, but FOR NOW, we are pleased with our support.   THANK YOU...

This Indian blog does have more traffic than by far or any of the others I just don't believe in Statistics.
